If you ask what is the single most important key to longevity, I would have to say it is avoiding worry. And if you didn’t ask me, I’d still have to say it.
How much time did you spend worrying today? Did all that energy change the outcome of any of your problems? Is it possible to worry a bit less tomorrow and live a bit more? Today’s Daily Dose shared by One Percent Better may help, by teaching you some of Dale Carnegie’s timeless lessons.
Dale Carnegie was a poor farm boy from Missouri who made a career teaching people how to have confidence in their ability to live a good life, regardless of the criticisms of others. In this book, Carnegie shares Seven Ways to cultivate a mental attitude that will bring you peace:
1. Fill your mind with thoughts of peace, courage, health, and hope
2. Never try to get even with your enemies
3. Expect ingratitude
4. Count your blessings, not your troubles
5. Find Yourself and Be Yourself
6. Try to profit from your losses
7. Create happiness for others
Published in 1948 in Britain, How to Stop Worrying and Start Living is still an award-winning work which is quoted by many in successful business and personal endeavors.
